A subcommittee of Huntington Beach Community Services met Tuesday to begin the process of officially naming a city park that already has an unofficial name.
The park, which surrounds the Main Street Library, has long been known informally as Triangle Park, but the city never officially named it, said David Dominguez, facilities development and concessions manager for the city.
After meeting, the Parks Naming & Memorials Committee is recommending that the city officially name it Triangle Park. The committee will make its recommendation to the entire community services commission May 11 before the City Council votes tentatively June 6, Dominguez said.
"Someone from the community asked about a park sign, and they wanted to raise funds, and I pointed out that for us to do that, the park had to be officially named, and that triggered the need for the meeting," he said.
There were some who recommended other names during the meeting. Mayor Joe Carchio recommended that the park be named after President Ronald Reagan.
